From rockabilly’s creation to nationwide sensation, Elvis’ world teemed with artists tapping parallel musical wellsprings, dreaming of a Presley-sized payoff. As the snare snaps a couple of rapid-fire rim-shots like a track judge’s starting gun, Bill Haley counts off the last seconds of adult culture’s reign in “Rock Around the Clock,” a bass-thumpin’ wedge of jumpin’ jive that [i]defies[/i] you to stay off the dance floor. After Elvis topped the charts with his “Blue Suede Shoes,” Carl Perkins revisited the wardrobe for “Put Your Cat Clothes On,” a breakneck-paced, piano-pounding boogie-woogie jam. And Tony Joe White’s swampy bayou baritone on “Polk Salad Annie” wrapped so much gator-chompin’ mojo around its core that Presley adopted the 1969 hit for himself. As you’ll discover with the rest of our Similar Sounds, you don’t [i]have[/i] to be a hell-fired son of the South to channel Elvis — but it sure helps.
